Sometimes you can only hope you get a nice room, with nice accommodations. James Inn offered that and a lot more. Not only were we fortunate to be on the ground floor but our front window looked out over the lovely garden and the Hansom...More
Over all, the stay was great! I had to ask the housekeep to do a little extra cleaning in my room as they missed a couple spots but they were prompt to clean it up. Narissa (?) at the front desk was great! A couple...More
Short walk to all the major places of interest. Staff were very helpful throughout, from helping us with an early check in to ferry timings. As other have said its not modern but it is very clean and in an attractive building. Room was a...More
First the positives; the location is great in a quiet street, yet very close to all the action downtown. The people on reception were courteous and helpful. The appearance of the inn is great. The restaurant serves typical pub grub and is fine.
We had a very pleasant stay at the James Bay Inn. We needed a place for 3, so their garden suite next door in their Victorian house annex was perfect. It was a one bedroom apartment in a charming period home with free parking behind...More

No air conditioning. Rooms have fans and the windows open. Victoria seldom gets hot enough for air conditioning. It's hardly ever humid. As the temperature goes up, the humidity goes down. Temperature drops rapidly at sunset. It's a very comfortable climate. It rarely goes above 30C/90F and there is usually a breeze off the ocean that moderates. I never missed air conditioning at the James Bay Inn or when I lived in the city for 10 years.
